Clinica has received confirmation from the UK's Health Protection Agency (HPA) that three cases of extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB were recorded in the UK in 2005, as defined at the time, but that no cases have been recorded under the recently revised case definition, a spokesperson said. Almost 8,200 new cases of TB were reported in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in 2006 (up 2% on 2005), according to provisional data, released last week.
